Enyimba close to midfield signings
Six-time Nigerian champions, Enyimba are closing in on bolstering their playing personnel with two midfielders.
The players expected to travel to Aba on Friday to join the People's Elephant are Abdulrazak Aliyu and Benjamin Ishaya.
Enyimba head coach, Salisu Yusuf is said to be keen on bringing in both players to shore up the team's midfield.
Aliyu and Ishaya played under Yusuf during his tenure as head coach at the Nigeria National League (NNL) side, FC Taraba last term.
At the moment, the players are free agents.
"Enyimba should sign two more players this weekend or as early as next week. The two players are Abdulrazak Aliyu and Benjamin Ishaya, who last played for FC Taraba. Coach Salisu really wants them.
"Already Enyimba have sent them money (as transport fare) to make the trip from their base in Kaduna to Aba. They are expected to be in Aba by Saturday by God's grace," an Enyimba source informed supersport.com on Friday.
The two-time African champions have been strengthening their playing and coaching personnel after failing to win a trophy in two years.
Enyimba last won a trophy in 2010 when they emerged Nigeria Premier League (NPL) champions.
